Icelandair will offer at least one direct flight from Keflavík to each of Iceland’s matches in the group stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Icelandair had a 40% increase in cargo flights this July compared to the same month last year. The increase can partly be traced to Iceland's demand for imported Costco products.
The head of the Icelandic Airline Pilots’ Association states that Icelandair's decision to lay off 115 pilots this fall does not bode well for wage negotiations.
The frequency of illness among Icelandair crewmembers has increased so much that the company is taking action.
